Hyberbolic BS makes you less credible when telling the truth, and that is exactly what this is...

Satan doesn’t care if anyone worships him. He wants people to worship THEMSELVES and nobody did that better than the baby boomer generation.

Blunt, but accurate.

What’s offensive about it? That it doesn’t falsely credit them for changing the world for a better place?

OK the Satan Worship accusation might be taking it a little bit over the edge, but at the same time it was the late 60s/70s when LaVey started his Satanist Church.

Hey don’t forget they managed to turn South East Asia into a communist prison camp killing millions in the process, and they did all this despite the fact communism was going to collapse everywhere else in a few years.

That’s what I call an accomplishment.

Exactly. The hippies were into tons of Eastern mysticism (alleged) and pagan Wicca bullcrap. They were idiotic, definitely drugged out. Perfect foundation for the democrat party to build upon, which it did.

I don’t think they were a hippy movement particularly, rather just one of many counter-cultural groups of the time who reveled rebelling against anything that normal society held as good and decent. I suspect most young ‘adults’ who joined these groups because they were tragically immature and and wanted to annoy their parents because they were having a prolonged period of adolescence.
Unfortunately, many of them never really grew out of it and even today haven’t ever completely grown up...

“They went to Canada or European countries to escape being drafted into military services. [MANY DID] Many young people turned to drugs and immoral lifestyles [PROBABLY MOST]; these youth became known as hippies. They went without bathing, wore dirty, ragged, unconventional clothing, and deliberately broke all codes of politeness or manners. [MOST DID] Rock music played an important part in the hippie movement and had great influence over the hippies. [AND STILL DOES] Many of the rock musicians they followed belonged to Eastern religious cults or practiced Satan worship.” [VERY TRUE FOR '60-'70's]

Other than being guilty of generalizations, I don't see anything here that's untrue at all.

Whether "satan" is a real critter, or simply the dark side of the force, your line above is correct.

The Jesus Freaks were the hippie revival Christian movement and helped get Reagan into office.

There was a strong theme of Christianity among many hippies.

Where people go wrong is confusing political activists and radicals, yippies, and college kids on their way to high political office, PHDs, and law degrees and wealth and power, with “hippies”.

Not according to the testbook quotes in the article:
"Many of the rock musicians they followed belonged to Eastern religious cults or practiced Satan worship"
Unless my eyes are deceiving me, that associates satan worship with the musicians, not with their hippie followers.

The problem is that far too many Americans today do not understand the distinction between all, many, most.

All statements here are objectively factual, with possible exception that “many,” unlike “most” and “all” is an undefined term. Does it mean 10% or 40%?

Which might tie into whether the last statement is factually true. However, even it says, “Many of the rock musicians they followed belonged to Eastern religious cults OR practiced Satan worship.” More the first than the second, I suspect.

BTW, I have long believed that the quickest way to separate the right from the left is opinion towards “the 60s.” Everybody knows what is meant by this term. Were the 60s a net good or a net evil for America and the world? IMO a very definite net evil, but many liberals still pine for what they perceive as those longlost days of peace and love.

What the left pines for from the 1960s was the crushing of America by the adult leadership, the presidents, the Supreme court justices, the Senators and congressmen, the legislation and court decisions, it isn't joints and rock concerts that they miss, it was the power of the left and it's total domination of the reins of power of the most powerful nation on earth.

The 1930s and 1960s were eras of the left's total control of the highest levels of government.

Hyperbole is absolutely the worst thing in the entire universe. It's at least a hundred billion trillion times worse than anything else you can name. It's even that many times worse than anything else you can't name.

Not sure if you are asking me to define this word for you or whether you are actually trying to suggest that they are actually being sensible in describing '60s hippies as 'Satan worshipers' who literally worshiped the actual Devil. Like I say, ascribing imaginary vices to your opponents to bolster your argument just makes one look ridiculous and less credible when it comes to attacking their real ones. Its just common sense.

There was a program on Hippies shown on “The History Channel” maybe a year ago.

I watched most of it and was surprised when they said it had it’s start with Satanic worship. I don’t recall the details but they were pretty matter of factually saying it was so.

And they couldn’t drive worth a damn. Name one hippie champion race car driver. None. Not one. They could never figure out what the clutch was for. It was those filthy, stinking hippies that did away with the “Four On The Floor” and muscle cars. They can all rot in he** with their rusty Volkswagens with burned up clutches. Jackasses thought a 4-4-2 was a telephone number.

As with everything, there was good and bad associated with the movement.

Nothing wrong with Peace and Love per se, but in many cases it was co-opted into anti-war/anti-capitalism and immorality.

Yes, you did interpret my comment correctly.

As far as your answer, “...they are actually being sensible in describing ‘60s hippies as ‘Satan worshipers’ who literally worshiped the actual Devil[?]”

I am not sure you actually read the statement: “Many of the rock musicians they followed belonged to Eastern religious cults or practiced Satan worship”

It ascribed some rock musicians, not hippies per se, as practicing Satan worship.

You think that’s not true?

Really? You’re going to compare acid-dropping, promiscuous layabouts to Jesus Christ? I think you may have allowed your perspective to get a little out of whack.

“I don’t see a problem here”

Hippies I knew didn’t worship satan. And this is designed for Jr Highschoolers. I don’t like garbage propaganda whether it comes from the left or the right or ... in this case ... Mars. “Dinosaurs walked alongside men” .. Yeah right.

And what did the repugs do? Criminalize their every move, and steal their lives.

All they needed was to be shown Gods love for them, not fear, hate, and criminality.

I don’t know if you can ever generalize like this. I don’t think most rock musicians from the Hippie era worshiped Eastern religions or Satan. Sure, some dabbled in it as something new but hardly any were serious about it. And keep in mind that one of the Hippie Heroes — Dennis Hopper — was Republican.
